Layla, Hidden Beach Specialist

Layla achieved an honours degree in Classics and a postgraduate Masters in Rhetoric, winning her an internship at the University of London, working in the events and sales department.

After completion of her degree it provided her with the opportunity to work on board a cruise ship as a Shore Excursion Leader, focusing on culture and antiquity. This gave her the chance to explore much of the world, leading passengers through three continents and over 40 countries, including Turkey, Oman, India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia. After 14 months on board she relocated to Australia for a year on a working visa before moving to Bali to spend time living the local lifestyle with some Balinese friends.

Wanting to settle down on home soil but keen to use her travel industry and sales skills, Layla joined the Hidden Beaches team at Audley, where she is now able to share her travel knowledge with others and inspire them to travel too. Since joining the team she has been lucky enough to travel to Thailand, Seychelles and Mauritius.

I'll never forget when…

The magical views that I was rewarded with at the peak of Mount Batur made the two hour nighttime hike worth every ache and pain. Nothing had prepared me for the stunning scene, enchanting colours and dreamlike atmosphere that was revealed as the moon set and the sun rose. I truly felt like I had been transported into a fairy tale world, which was enhanced further by spending the rest of the day lazing at the natural springs overlooking the mountain I had just climbed.
